Can you define "doesn't work" a bit more precisely?

- there is a well formedness error
- the program crashes
- the screen is blank
- all the characters are missing
- some of the characters are missing
- all the characters show the wrong glyphs
- a few of the charascters show the wrong glyphs
- it all works unless Plane 2 characters are used
